Today when I woke up, the sun streaming through my blinds, I wanted to turn on the computer right away to check out the blog world, facebook, emails and things like that. I realized that I am addicted to the Internet, to the blog world. I love reading all the stories people write about. It amazes me how we can interact and get to know each other from different states, different countries, even different continents. I enjoy all the difference of writing style, all the different personalities that I can feel through the written word. So now you know my secret, I am addicted to the Internet.
So this morning when my 3 month old woke me up at 7am, with her little baby talk, I made myself and the baby presentable, then we did some Pilate's moves for my exercises, I read my bible, had some quiet time with Jesus. Took a little walk with the baby in my arms around my garden, enjoying the fresh, crisp smell of early morning. There was a bit of cool breeze from the delta, I imagined that I can even smell the salt from the ocean. Then I made myself a cup of my favorite coffee, and the little one was ready for her morning nap. My older girls woke up, and after giving them breakfast I was able to log in online. I know, I know I cant stay away the whole day!
I took a little break from the Internet world. I wonder how many other people feel addicted to it? If only we were addicted like this to the word of God, to His presence. Over the weekend I realized how life could be so unpredictable. A friend of ours who was a dear christian decided to leave his wife and his children and live a life of a single man. Makes me wonder what our world is coming to? God knows what is in every ones heart, sometimes we can hide it, or the evil things we do, or think. But eventually it will show it self.

'He brought me forth into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me. The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness: according to the cleanness of my hands..' Psalm 18:19-20
